Everyone can participate in the Xubuntu community on many levels, from simply giving advice to fellow Xubuntu users to becoming a maintainer of core packages. Any contribution, even the smallest one, is valued. We welcome everybody to improve Xubuntu and spread Free Software.
Three tips to start contributing to Xubuntu
Whether you contribute or not, you are free to join us at #xubuntu (along with the other IRC channels!) as well as join the Xubuntu users group at Launchpad.
Xubuntu development subteams
- Quality Assurance, including bug triaging and testing
- Support and Documentation
- Marketing, Promotion and Artwork
- Translation and Localization
- Development, including programming and packaging
Once you get started, you’ll also want to create an account at Launchpad and introduce yourself as well as your talents in the Xubuntu-devel mailing list. If you want to contribute to a specific part of the project, it’s a good idea to contact the appropriate team leader too – you can find the complete list of current leaders – and leadership positions open – at the Xubuntu wiki.
It’s also encouraged to create your own wiki page on the Ubuntu wiki to introduce yourself to the broader Ubuntu community as well as keep track of your contributions within the community.
